[cheering] want to get him before congress and i want to
see what he has to say. you know, they say he has immunity. why would you have immunity for outright fraud? why would you have immunity? he's a fraud. we are fighting a campaign against leftist, socialists, and globalists who want to return to open borders, rampant crime, and disastrous one-way trade deals. we are changing that one around very quickly. [cheering] believeump: they america is the world's big bang and that your tax dollars should subsidize the defense of every other nation in the world but our own. it's not happening anymore. [booing] pres. trump: our political opposition made its fortune selling out our nation and its citizens. that's what's been happening. that's why 2016 was so important.

america first. [cheering] pres. trump: the radical democrats want to destroy america as we know it. they want to indoctrinate our children. that america is a sinful, wicked nation. you see that happening all the time. [booing] pres. trump: i know it from personal experience. what they want to teach your kids. not good. they come home. this is what i learned. you are going, no. don't tell me. let's get them into another school fast. they want to disarm law-abiding citizens. they want to take your guns away.

down symbols of faith and drive christians and religious believers from the public square. they want to silence your voices on social media. they want the government to censor and shut down conservative voices. you know that. [booing] if they didn't hate our country, they wouldn't be doing this. they know better. they know better. as an example, we are building a great wall along the southern border. [cheering] pres. trump: it's going up rapidly. it's going up. [chanting] build that wall, build that wall, built that wall, built that wall. ago, trump: five years
almost every one of them wanted a wall. until i came along and said, we will build a great wall. they could never get it done. and then they stop the funding. they made it almost impossible. few people would have been able to do what we did. we got it from here and we got it from there and we got it from all over the place. we are building that structure right now and it's having a tremendous affect already. not easy. [cheering] pres. trump: highest level, everything we said it would be. it's moving rapidly. although the fake news back there don't want to talk about it. [booing] they don't want to talk about it. [booing] pres. trump: look at all those cameras. you believe it? look at all those red lights. don't worry, i won't say anything bad about your networks

[laughter] pres. trump: they don't want their viewers to see it. that's ok. i'm not going to say good night. -- say it tonight. [laughter] pres. trump: look at that. look at all those cameras. that's like the academy award used to be before it failed. do you know why it failed? they came after us. that's why it failed. [cheering] pres. trump: it failed because they had stupid people saying horrible things about us. stupid. [cheering] pres. trump: stupid people. they are stupid people. they are -- their ratings have dropped like a rock. i love seeing it. [cheering] hard trump: no matter how
they try, they will fail. the people of texas and the people of america will never surrender our freedoms to those people right there. [cheering] pres. trump: we will stand strong for family, faith, god, and country. [cheering] pres. trump: last week, a very dumb democrat candidate for president, that's the end of him in the state, pledged to revoke the tax-exempt status of many churches and religious charities. [cheering] /-- [booing] pres. trump: by the way, that was after a few weeks ago, he
said, we are going to take your guns away. that doesn't work well. [booing] him, trump: i told remember the flailing arms? nobody noticed it. i noticed it. you remember? he was flailing all over the place. john gordon is going to win so easily. just like ted cruz. [cheering] pres. trump: no matter what happens. [cheering] pres. trump: john cornyn is not talking about beddoe anymore. weeks, gotfew short rid of guns and religion. those are not good things in texas. [cheering] pres. trump: i will never allow the federal government to be used to punish americans for their religious beliefs. [cheering] allowtrump: i will never
the irs to be used as a political weapon, except in the case of myself when they use it against me. [cheering] left trump: the radical tolerates dissent. it permits no opposition. it accepts no compromise. these people are crazy. respect forutely no the will of the american people. first, it was the rush a hoax. -- russia hoax. [booing] pres. trump: then it was the smearing which continues, that disgusting smearing of a fine man, just as kavanaugh. [cheering] pres. trump: and now they continue the witchhunt impeachment with nothing.
they come after me but what they are really doing is coming after the republican party. what they are really doing is fighting you and we never lose. [applause] i am fighting for everyone who believes in the values, traditions, principles, that has made our nation the greatest in the history of the world. we are far greater now than ever before. 8. go back four years, 7, 6, administration, 10 and 12 years. where were you compared to where you are right now? [applause] we must hold the democrats accountable for their lies and corruption. they are corrupt people. we must show and vote.

[applause] today's do-nothing democrats -- they don't do anything -- where is the usmca? everybody wants it. the democrats even wanted. crazy nancy will not let anybody vote in an. today's democrats believe anyone who opposes them must be crushed. i have to say this. the republicans said, i'm not sure i like this. the republicans play a softer game. stars, they went to the speaker of the house at the time. they asked for subpoenas, let's take it easy. ok.

has lost hundreds of people. these wars brought chaos, instability. today, we choose a different path. we had tremendous success. i don't know if you saw. we built the strongest military by far. in general told me, we could have had a conflict and said, we don't have ammunition. i said, i never want to president, somebody have that statement made to them as president of the u.s.. we do not have ammunition. you don't so much, know what to do with it.
i guess you have been watching. andid, vice president pence secretary of state pompeo leading a delegation to meet with erdogan of turkey. they got there today and it did work. without spilling a drop of american blood, will not one we have all agreed on a pause were cease-fire. it was unconventional what i did. i said, they are going to have to fight. people find out how tough the fighting is, these guys know right up here. sometimes you have to let them fight.
you got to let them fight and then you pull them apart. it was unconventional. they fought for a few days and it was vicious. the kurds, who are our friends, it was tougher. it was nasty. you could not make a deal. make as, they could not deal. turkey did not want to budge. turkey was having a lot of bad things happening. now all of they are fighting and it is not fun. we went there. we said, we want a pause. the kurds have been terrific. we are going to find more of them. turkey is all set. president erdogan was great.
i don't think they could have economically survived. erdogan was a gentleman, he understood it. but not without a little tough love. with tough love, they would have never made this deal. president trump lost -- president obama lost one million people. doing, we are going to see if we can get it finalized and i think it will be. turkey is going to be happy. isis is going to be unhappy. we will deal with whoever we have to deal with but we will get it done. vice president
pence and mike pompeo. good job. good job. they are traveling back to our country. they will be back soon. of a lot ofng care religious persecution. we added that in. a lot of things in that agreement nobody thought possible. we have to fundamentally change our approach. that example, nobody would have ever done that. you have to be a little different to do with that way. i took a lot of heat even from some of our congressmen, some of our senators. but now they are all happy. i am happy with them. i am happy with them. say, what as will
terrible -- anything we say, the democrats will criticize. if i said, we get beijing for one dollar. they would say, what a terrible deal. it just doesn't work with them. the wall, we spent so much time with them on the wall. i realized two weeks ago, all i said was, we will never build a wall and they would come through and say, we demand you build it. it would have been so much easier. american combat troops should not be at the center of sectarian conflicts. bring our soldiers back home. >> usa
usa. usa. the same people pushing us to fight endless wars overseas want us to open our borders to mass migration. importolicies would storessm right onto our -- shores. want open borders. they want everybody to flow in. they want those caravans to flow in. they would not get rid of the loopholes. mexico has been great. 27,000 soldiers on our border. have stopped this horrible migration. many of them are bad people.
when countries send them, they are not sending their finest. use your head. they are not sending the finest. now we send them back. ice is fantastic. they have taken out thousands and thousands of ms 13 killers. now we have made deals with guatemala and honduras. el salvador and mexico. we have made deals where we can bring back -- there are 45,000 people waiting in mexico, but it is going to be tough. they used to be no people waiting in mexico. our borders are getting strong. any will be as strong as border in the world. my administration believes in a simple principle.
the best way to keep foreign themrist out is to deny admission in the first place. it is pretty simple. why we have imposed and we won at the u.s. supreme court, a travel ban on some of countries.ngerous democrats seize power, they would throw the floodgates wide open. we would have people coming into our country. they say, coming to california. we will give you free health care, free education. why wouldn't they? i may even move to california if they keep going. it brings everybody in. what is wrong with these people? we are rebuilding our military. we are not going to deplete it
senseless,upid, endless wars. we have invested more than $2.5 trillion restoring our armed forces. all of it was built in the usa. that includes the construction of stealth fighters. are built right here in fort worth. as we restore our security, we are also restoring our prosperity. america is winning again. america is respected again.
last month, unemployment reached its lowest level in 51 years. americans have been lifted off of food stamps since the election. 1.3 million children have been lifted out of poverty, think of that. african-american, hispanic american, asian american unemployment rates have reached the lowest levels in history. our great hispanic american population has reached a poverty which is an all-time low in u.s. history.
after years of stagnation, wages for hispanic americans are rising fast. since my election. everybody in the fake news would say, that is impossible. income -- median income for hispanic americans surpassed $50,000 a year for the first time ever. with republicans in congress, we passed the largest package of tax cuts and reform by far an american history. by the way, the democrats want to raise your taxes. i don't mean a little bit. triple.ike double, eliminated a record number of
regulations and we ended the war in a thing called american energy which is wood for texas. since my election, natural gas production in texas has increased 35%. increasedtion has 60%. the u.s. is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. yet every major democrat wants to abolish oil production -- all production of oil and natural gas. i think they want to go to windmills. windmills, you know. i want to watch trump speak. we cannot, the wind is not blowing.
they want to annihilate your texas economy. no more oil, no more natural gas. here we have a few people, right? no guns, no religion. no oil. no natural gas. abraham lincoln could not win texas under those circumstances. couldn't do it. couldn't do it today. could not do it. abraham lincoln, honest aid, could not do it. i used it to say, i can be more presidential. look. [applause] i said i can be
more presidential than any president in history. except for honest abe lincoln when he is wearing the hat. that is a tough one to beat. it is much easier being presidential. all you have to do is act like a stiff. ladies and gentlemen of texas, it is a great honor to be with you this evening. the media would love it. everybody would be out of here so fast, you would not have come in in the first place. democrats will never get that chance. texas will never give it to them.
remember the last election? play.aid, texas is in play, too.utah is in thousands of people outside that could not get in. they said, it is phony. hopes down.get your this is just like fake news. they said texas. they said texas is in play. gentlemen, texas is in play. president trump -- i had guys in from texas and they are wearing cowboy hats. a lot of guys. they said, i knows of the devout texas. double trump is not going to lose texas. -- donald trump is not going to
lose texas. i don't know what you are talking about. texas is not in play. and then we had that great night. the polls closed at 7:00. usually, they take hours. even if it is big, they take half an hour. the texas polls are closed. usually, it takes hours. if it is not so close, it takes a long time. in thels have closed state of texas. donald trump has won the state of texas. right?
the polls have closed in utah. remember the guy with the shaved head? even hillary beat him. now he is on the talk shows. this guy in beat utah. hillary came in second. i came in first. that was another one, too close to call. utah, the polls have closed. we won by a lot. we won florida and south carolina and georgia. we won north carolina. we won pennsylvania. we won a lot. these phony people? i kept going to maine, i love maine.
it is cut in half. i went there for-five times. they got me up to 269. i won, by the way. won, too. i went there. a lot. that is the beautiful thing about the electoral college. winning the popular vote would be much easier. to four states and relax. i went to 21 states. i used to bily leave and others. it is like you are a track star. it is a different form of training. we did great. they said, you cannot get to 200. they were right. we got to 306.
after decades of economic surrender, i have taken action to confront china's abuses. our relationship is fantastic. great things are happening. they get it now. a lot of good things are happening. nafta.replacing i used to call it the worst trade deal in history. think the wto, a real beauty. that is a real beauty. they considered china a developing nation. because you are a developing nation, they consider it to be a developing nation. we wrote them letters. we don't consider them to be a
developing nation. we don't consider india to be a developing nation. they are ripping us off. we did not win any cases. alien dollars. one -- won a lot of cases. they know i will leave it they don't treat us fairly. and then the piggy bank is gone. are replacing the nafta disaster. get nancy pelosi to put this up for a vote. a giant victory for manufacturers. oil. should pass it. overwhelmingly, they will.
nowhere is the democrat betrayal of our nation more dramatic than in immigration. did you see these debates? can you see what i am competing with? with tedd to compete cruz, that was brutal. debatethe national champion? i never did that? all the sudden, i am supposed to be debating tomorrow night. i said, who are these people? i contributed to a lot of them. they used to treat me nicely when i can to but it. not so nice when i was there opponent. i want to see, who are these people? been a debate.as i never debated like with a podium. i said, who are they?
we had 17 people. plus me. remember? gilmore? nobody remembers him. we had 18 people. i said, who are these people? are they any good at debating? i hired a debate coach. he lasted for about 10 minutes. i said, this guy knows less than i do. he didn't know anything, it is true. he said never interrupt while they are speaking. i said, ok, coach, put me in, coach. after couple of those statements, you cannot beat ted cruz if you do not interrupt him. i said, let me see the cards. i want to see it. i need help.
i'm going to be debating. everyone is saying, do you think he is going to be able to debate professionally? his class.ident of one guy was a good debater in college. he was this, he was ok. they give me the first card, ted cruz. debate, national champion from princeton. is that right? debaten, national champion from harvard. i said to my wife, first lady, potentially, i've got a problem. i said some of these guys are ok. they were only president of the class. i never ran for president of the class. i liked playing baseball better. millennia -- melania,
i have a problem. was the number one guy in college. he was the number one guy in college. we came out ok. he was tough. smart as hell and tough. good man. i looked at, ted cruz. national debate, he was the best in all of college and law school. in recent debates, you see these people up there. they are not ted cruz, leave me. democrat, youn would win. no?
i don't think so. every single democrat candidate for president, raised their hand in favor of giving free health care to all illegal aliens. they want to give more to illegal aliens than they give to american citizens. as president, i will never allow the democrats to take away your health care dollars. can't do it. fact, i just signed an executive action to protect american health care benefits for all american citizens. byng those hardest hit illegal immigration are millions of illegal immigration are millions of legal immigrants right here in texas. mexicang patriotic americans who play by the rules.
strengthen our communities. whether you are a first generation or 10th generation, and every american citizen, you have been treated badly but you were not being treated badly anymore. we got rate of the individual obamacare.m every citizen deserves a government that defend your jobs. and is always loyal to you. we are loyal to you. reducedistration has illegal border crossings by 60% since may. but as with no help from the democrats. they will not close the loopholes. we could do it in 15 minutes.
we are building the wall. not close thewill loopholes. you know what the loopholes are, right? catch and release. you catch them. you say, how are you? could you give us your name and phone number. could you give us your address. they don't want to have an address in honduras. can you please give us your address? they can't. ok, we catcht is and release. and then we are getting them out of the country. some are very good people. some of them are unbelievably dangerous and bad. we are focusing on the bad. they're getting the hell out of the country, ok? while we are fighting for shared priorities, the democratic party has never been further outside
of the mainstream. every democrat running for president is pushing a health care agenda that would eviscerate medicare. my administration will protect medicare for our seniors. we will protect patients with pre-existing conditions. our ambitious campaign to reduce the price of prescription drugs has produced the largest decline in drug prices and only -- over 51 years. people don't talk about it. the press will not talk about it. we have news conferences. you have no idea how dishonest the media is. virtually every top democrat supports late term remote --
abortion. straight from the mothers's right up until the moment of birth. and the crack pot governor from virginia executes the baby after birth. you said that, right? fromre member that one last year. that is why i'm asking congress to prohibit late-term abortions. republicans believe every child is a sacred gift from god. democrats are the party of crazy politicians, high taxes, high crime. open borders. socialism. blatant corruption. f is are corrupt like schif
corrupt, he is corrupt. is the party of the american worker, the american family, and the american dream. it is also the party of honest abe lincoln, we forget that. we have to use that more often, don't you think? i liked honest aid. -- abe. thank you. play that to them. you are right. we have confirmed 152 federal justices. neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh. when i got into office, they say
the most important thing a president can do, they say it is defense. judges. federal how many do you have? i have none. i said, how many federal i said how many federal judges to have? that's impossible. that would mean president obama didn't appoint 142 judges. you get none. or you're doing a bad job as president because you're representing a different philosophy. so i came in and i said no, no, no. check it again. 142. we were right the first time. 142 judges. within 32 months, we will have john and ted and all of these great congressman, we will have judges.82 federal
[applause] president trump: and then they say obama was such a wonderful president. how are you a wonderful president when the most important thing you can do, you handed over to the republicans? 142? how is that good? if i were a democrat, i wouldn't be too happy about that number. and we'll have a record number of judges by the time our term is over in 16 years, maybe 20. [applause] --sident trump: i'm only [applause] president trump: i'm only kidding because every time i do that they say see, he's assuming control. we have this crazy guy on television. and he goes, you know, he's

new breakthroughs in science and s forine, finding

[applause] president trump: this is the state where a small band of
patriots had the battle of gonzales, armed with a single cannon, stand down a foreign army and declared, "come and take it!" [applause] >> usa! usa! usa! usa! usa! president trump: and texas is the state where generations of farmers, ranchers, pioneers, and oil workers built a life and a home with their own two, beautiful hands. [applause] president trump: they didn't have a lot of money. they didn't have a lot of luxury.
but they all had one thing in common. they loved their families. they loved their country. and they loved their god. [applause] president trump: these courageous texas patriots did not shed their blood, sweat, and tears, so that we could sit at home while others tried to erase their legacy, demolish their liberty, and destroy ever proud american heritage -- our proud american heritage. weasel never, ever -- we will never, ever allow that to happen.
